Trackimo devices use GPS and mobile technology to track luggage, pets, vehicles or other personal items
Tech Data Mobile has made GPS technology from US-based location services company Trackimo available to UK resellers.
Trackimo’s range of personal trackers use a combination of GPS chips and a SIM-card to allow users to track personal devices such as luggage, pets or vehicles, with no monthly fee or cost for data roaming.
The Universal Trackimo fits into the palm of the hand and has an SRP of £74.99, including one year of global services, and is water resistant with a three day battery life. It is available from Tech Data from today (September 29).
Tech Data Mobile vendor director David Brassington said that the Trackimo device has the potential to open up a whole new area of business for retailers and resellers. “This is a unique and very smart piece of technology,” he added.
“Just about every individual and business will be able to make use of this compact, discrete and affordable device, so the potential is absolutely huge.
“The Trackimo concept is very easy to understand and forms part of the whole wearables revolution that is now starting to gather pace. This device presents retailers and resellers with an opportunity to show their customers just how useful, dynamic and practical personal and wearable technology can be.”
